I'm glad you liked the pics, I think she could still wear that red dress from 1982 these days, but maybe she
would consider it to be too red now

Here are some covers with Sofia and Juan Carlos, I hope they have not been posted before:

Semana 1967
Hola 1963
Hola 1973 - great 1970s dress

Iceflower, What pretty photos! The one of the queen with koala she is precious, and the covers are full of glamour and ela is very pretty. They always comment that our queen has improved years in the last but in all the old images is also seen precious and with much class. Also they are fantastic those that you have put of Sofía and Diana. Thank you very much!

I believe that it was not a direct interview with the Queen, but a summary of declarations that the Queen does in the book of the journalist Pilar Urbano, the only authorized biography of the Queen and for that Her Majesty supported several meetings with the writer. It is very strange the occasion in which the Queen grants an interview and less to a magazine like Vogue. Her more recent interview has been with the Public Agency of News EFE and only to speak about the inauguration of the Center for the Alzheimer of her Foundation.
